Solid Experience in a Corporate Enterprise Environment

Gerry C., Newegg
2 weeks ago
  • Summary: - Primary uses are for typical office applications, and IT related work (coding, development etc...) - My corporation bought this, so my review will not be listed as a "verified buyer" - Could've ordered a 27" Mac display, but opted for frugality in today's economic environment.
  • Pros: - Beautiful screen, and accurate colors. - No issues with using this as a secondary display (via DisplayPort) from my MacBook Pro. - Very good screen quality. I have an iMac 27" 1440p and 5K at home, and the quality is within 80-85% of those two monitors. Given that Mac displays are at 100% (Exce...
  • Cons: - Wish there were a dedicated brightness controls. This is a con for most new monitors. I constantly adjust my display at least 2x per day i.e. day & night, and having to maneuver through any OSD is a pain. At least Asus isn't as bad as some, but still a dedicated button would a huge User Experie...

A Pure Joy

George L., Newegg
30 December 2015
  • Summary: Everything I've gotten from ASUS has been solid, long lasting and dependable. The 24in LCD that this display was meant to replace was also an ASUS (4 years old) and I decided to keep it as a second display. I've had this display now for a year; both it and the old one are still going strong.
  • Pros: - Brilliant clarity - Huge viewing angle
  • Cons: - none

Tried 1440p before, Now I am pleased

Brandon C., Newegg
29 December 2015
  • Summary: I tried the Samsung 1440p current model, the one that costs around 700, not the one that is about 1200. And it was HORRIBLE for gaming. The input lag was through the roof and was unplayable. That turned me off of 1440p and I was very disappointed because I wanted that high resolution.
  • Pros: high PPI great color/vibrancy I like the semi-gloss anti-glare coating (prefer over glossy) I was able use EVGA pixel Clock, an Nvidia feature, to OC this monitor to 80Hz refresh rate I no longer need to use heavy super sampling or MSAA in my games--2 to 4 X AA is usually MORE THAN sufficient Som...
  • Cons: Lower Refresh Rate , however you can OC it!

  • Excerpt: B&H offered the best price regarding tax and shipping. The monitor came carefully packed and factory sealed along with the aroma of godliness. The performance is superb: - Many advanced options regarding color corrections, contrast and gamma settings, etc.

Absolute Best Monitor for the Price.

14 December 2015
  • Excerpt: I bought this as a companion monitor for the PB278Q I purchased when the monitor originally debuted. The pair are amazing for my desktop setup. I loved it then and I love it more now. There have been a few updates to this model since it came out and all improve what was already a great display.
  • Pros: Clear, Crisp, Easy To Set Up, Versatile, Well-built

Great monitor

  • Excerpt: What's not shown is how the monitor can move. It slides up down, tilts up down, the monitor rotates 90 degrees to a tall screen, and the base swivels around. The mac monitor looks nicer, but it can't touch what this can do.
  • Pros: Easy To Set Up, Versatile

Incredible Monitor! Use it with Adobe video and photo edit

NickNick, B&H Photo
7 December 2015
  • Excerpt: The color is absolutely beautiful. I use it as my main monitor and to edit video. Photoshop looks great on it. I am very happy with my purchase. I went back and fourth between the 1080 and this one. The price was double but I use my monitor 7 hour plus a day. I took a chance and WOW.
  • Pros: Buttons, Color, Easy To Adjust, Easy To Set Up, Warranty

Wonderful Monitor

treefree, B&H Photo
27 November 2015
  • Excerpt: I use my computer to post process digital photographs and I calibrate my monitor every week or two. My old monitor would no longer calibrate into specs, so the B&H salesperson recommended this monitor as a replacement. It was backordered for about 5 weeks, but was well worth the wait.
  • Pros: Beautiful Screen, Easy To Set Up, Never Freezes, Powerful
  • Cons: None

Amazing monitor!

Aleksandar K., Newegg
17 November 2015
  • Summary: I read fairly long review of this 27" beauty, and the guy finished it with "what are you waiting for? GET IT!!!" That's what I did... I got it... so what are you waiting for?
  • Pros: My 27" Asus with 1920x1200 was already hitting about 4-5 years and it was a time to up the main monitor. 27/28" and 1080p - let me tell you, I tried... and no, it did not work at all :) ... it works if you are sitting 5ft away from it where PC monitor looses it's usability. Anyhow, I reviewed 25"...
  • Cons: Stand rotates together with the monitor, so if you are a neat-freak and like everything to be positioned in linear order, it may bother you for the whole first 5 minutes... after that you will love this monitor!

Great Monitor

Daniel G., Newegg
6 November 2015
  • Pros: I bought this monitor in July, 2013. It has been a performer, and I couldn't be happier with it. I us it for both work and gaming. I am a VoIP Cloud engineer that uses the real-estate of 2K, and a fairly heavy gamer. In 2014, I acquired a 2x970 GTX sli setup. I must say this monitor delivers on b...
  • Cons: None....Could be buy 2 get 1 free, but we know that isn't happening. The OSD menu is a little frustrating, but they all generally are in my experience.
